hernandez alvarez. this year it was jordan zimmermann no hitting the marlins. matt williams, manager, had planned to pull him after five or six innings. with one out to go the marlins almost spoiled the big day, but steven souza makes an incredible catch to preserve the no no. zimmermann delivers the first no hitter in national history. >> it was awesome. i was just all smiles and those guys been playing great behind me all year and to end it like this, it's special. >> it's one of those special days that everybody is proud to be a part of. certainly a fantastic end to our regular season. it's great to see them get mobbed by his teammates and have that celebration on the field. that's wonderful. >> check out this angle. once the ball is up, it was a double. you could see the
